itsu first opened its doors in 1997, after recognising a need for healthy, nutritious fast food. 25 years later it has landed in Scotland, launching a beautiful store in the heart of Edinburgh. Most of the Asian-inspired menu is under 500 [good] calories and packed with vitamins, fibre & protein with a third of dishes being plant-based and the vast majority costs under £7. Their modern menu is light and packed with protein, wholegrain brown rice, and vegetables. Each of their hot pots contains up to 15 different fibre-rich nutritious greens, herbs and aromatics. Inspired by fresh food places in Japan, they also hold a half-price evening sale to help reduce food waste.
